This is something I wrote up last year, when I was bingeing on apocalyptic movies.
APOCALYPTIC film typically follows 3 narrative types..
1. DISASTER In which the end of the world is impending. The apocalypse may be averted as in the andromeda strain (1971), armageddon (1998); or it may be inevitable, as in when worlds collide (1951), melancholia (2011)
2. AFTERMATH In which the narrative follows SURVIVAL and REBUILDING in a devastated post-apocalyptic world, mad max 2 (1981), waterworld (1995).
3. FUTURISTIC In which a post-apocalyptic world has been reorganised into a new social order, some years after an apocalyptic event, logan's run (1976), the hunger games (2012).

Anthony, we're been through this many times privately, obviously to no avail. Please stop bumping threads so frequently, especially those that aren't even a day old. An occasional bump here and there is fine, but try to have a bit more patience. People know how to go to page 2. Thanks.
